    Battery life.

    So I left my phone at work Thursday night and the battery died. Friday morning I put it on the charger in my truck at about 630 am. It was not fully charged until just after noon! Now the battery life is abysmal! I used to get about 10 hours out of it before it alarmed at 15%. Now, without changing any settings or usage pattern, well, I took it off the charger st 530 this morning, and its noon and I have 25% remaining. Any advice?

    If you have not done so calibrate your battery. There is an app on the market called battery calibration that tells you exactly what to do. Then we know that your battery gauge is accurate. Next I would install Watchdog from the market and set it to aggressive to find rouge apps that are using up battery.

    There are lots of ways to go after battery problems. These are just two to get started. others will have more things to check and try.

    Oh yeah. Check how often your apps/widgets are refreshing and consider making them less often.
